Once you have a comfortable grasp of honey bee biology, as well as the biology
of the various bee pathogens and pests, you will naturally reach the point where
you can follow your intuition. Please, though ... There is much more information
available on the use of the Langstroth hive than there is for top-bar hives or
Warré hives, and there are far fewer beekeepers who have experience with the
latter two options should you have questions or need the help of a mentor. For
reasons I ...

Spend time watching your hives. What the bees say in this book is right.”
NATHAN RAUSCH, Snoqualmie Valley Beekeepers “This is the most apicentric
book on natural beekeeping that I have read. . . . Throughout the book she lets
the bees speak for themselves as they tell us about things hitherto hidden from us
, things which could provide a source of inspiration for research far into the future.

A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives Christy Hemenway ... helps
more green beekeepers get started by populating a new hive with a nuc (starter
colony) of bees from an existing top bar hive, instead of using package bees. a
Brief Note regarding Warre hives Before moving on, I'd like to quickly address
Warre Hives. Developed by Abbé Émile Warré (1867–1951) and sometimes
known as “The People's Hive,” a Warre hive is often described as a vertical top
bar hive.

We found it invaluable to have a hive we could compare to ours, as well as
having someone whose brain we could pick about what was going on in our
hives. When deciding which course to take, you may also need to make a choice
between two fundamentally different approaches to beekeeping: the
conventional school of framebased beekeeping promoted by beekeeping
associations, or the more hands-off top-bar, or 'Warré hive', beekeeping practised
by the natural beekeeping ...

Such hives use some kind of 'top bar' rather than a complete frame, and are thus
generically called 'top bar hives'. They fall into two categories: vertical and
horizontal. A. Vertical Top Bar Hives The Warré hive (or People's Hive, as its
designer, the Belgian priest Abbé Émile Warré modestly named it) has become
popular in recent years, largely through the work of Dr David Heaf2, and is
generally considered a suitable hive for balanced/natural beekeeping because it
attempts to mimic ...

Making artificial swarms, splits, reversals, and other manipulations, such as
feeding sugar syrup, are difficult or even impossible (versus what's possible with
a hive using framed comb). But the whole idea of this design is to provide as
natural an environment as possible for your bees. Frequent manipulations are
contrary to the all-natural objective. If you decide to administer medications, that
can be a difficult task (there is no feeder, for example). But hey, with a Warré hive,
we're talking ...

Unlike conventional beekeeping, where frames are used in the hives, the bees
are allowed to build their wax combs freely. This is called natural beekeeping,
which is quite paradoxical since humans have designed all these models of bees
' nests – even though the bees can build their honeycombs any way they want.
Simplicity was the intention when Abbé Warré designed his frameless hive in the
early 1900s. The Warré hive, or “People's Hive,” has boxes in the same size with
top ...

As building beehives go, the Warré hive is simple to build (no tricky woodworking
and no frame building) and quite cost-effective. ✓ As per Warré management
protocol, this design demands very little interaction on the beekeeper's part. It's
kind of a “set it and forget it” style of beekeeping, with nearly no inspections, other
than adding supers and harvesting honey at the end of the season (inspecting a
Warré hive often damages the delicate, natural comb). Less inspection means
less ...

After The Barefoot Beekeeper was published in early 2007, I was contacted by Dr
David J. Heaf, who, with his wife Pauline, has translated Abbé Warré's book,
Beekeeping For All into English from the original French. ... his own book, The
Bee-friendly Beekeeper, which elucidates his approach to working with the Warré
hive, and which I recommend to everyone interested in that system and also to
anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of what natural beekeeping is all
